Most Forgotten Items to Add to Your Baby Registry

Posted by RPP KIDS on

Baby, Hand, Infant, Child, Father, Parents, Sweet

More often than not, many soon-to-be parents forget to add certain items that they need for their registry. And it's never your fault. Becoming a parent can be stressful. For this reason, it's very easy to forget something that you're going to need when the baby is born. But if you're looking to be prepared for when the little one is about to be delivered, then continue reading below. RPP Kids has prepared a small list below that details a few baby items that imminent parents will need to add to their registry.

Most Forgotten Baby Items to Add to Your Registry

Diaper Bag

Parents will stress over constantly on being prepared with diapers, wipes, and anything else ensuring their child isn't troubled with stinky problems. But often, they'll usually overlook the need for a diaper bag. A diaper bag, as the name implies, is able to hold diapers for any sort of traveling the parents and the child will do. And besides diapers, of course, the diaper bag is also able to hold many other items as well.

It's usually when parents first start to travel somewhere with their child that they realize they don't have something to help carry diapers. Don't be like such parents. Get your quality diaper bag when you order from RPP Kids today!

Clothing With Zippers

It's a no brainer for parents to remember clothing for their newborns. But parents will often forget to include clothing with zippers on their baby registry. It seems trivial, but trust us when we tell you that you'll want such clothing for your child. Don't believe us? Just consider the fact how difficult it can be to slip clothing onto a squirming baby as you're trying to button up their footie.

Zippers are the go-to for most parents when it comes to baby clothes. And this is because they serve as the easiest and quickest way to clothe a baby. On top of that, they are comfy, soft, and can be worn for most occasions. 

If you're in need of baby footies for either a boy or a girl, feel free to browse through RPP Kids online store!

 

Swaddle

Okay, so swaddles aren't really a typical forgotten item on baby registries. But swaddling most babies with traditional swaddle blanket has been proven to be tricky. For this reason, parents have switched to 2-in-1 swaddles instead. A 2-in-1 has all the perks of a traditional swaddle with the addition of Velcro straps to ensure your baby is snug and secure.

When you're ready to purchase your own 2-in-1, browse through our selection of swaddles and sacs.

How to Hold Your Newborn Child

Posted by RPP KIDS on

It may sound simple, but you'll be surprised how many people don't actually know how to properly hold their newborn baby. It seems like something that you can just jump into. But truth is, there's a lot that goes into holding your baby. And if you're unsure what it is exactly you need to do before and when you're holding your child, then continue reading below. RPP Kids has listed some factors you need to be mindful of when you're holding your child.

Holding Your Newborn Child

First Things First, Wash Your Hands

This is the first thing many parents forget to do, and it's one of the most important steps. Before you pick up your newborn child, always make sure that you wash your hands. Newborn children are susceptible to a myriad of bacteria which can cause them to be sick. For this reason, always make sure you wash your hands before you touch your child. Also, make sure you have sanitizer handy for any guests who want to cuddle your baby.

Get Comfortable

You want to make sure that your child is comfortable as you're holding them. But more so, you also want to make sure that you're equally comfortable holding your child. And being comfortable doesn't only mean being physically comfortable. You must also feel comfortable and confident in holding your baby as well. If you're new to holding a baby, we suggest that you take at least 5 minutes to get used to the idea of holding a child before you pick them up.

It's okay to feel a little unsettled at first. But don't let your anxiety take over. Take your time and breathe. If you're fairly new to holding a newborn child, we recommend that you take a seat as you're doing so. You can rest easy as you're holding your child when you sit in our Como Ottoman. We also have plenty of other gliders, rockers, recliners, and ottomans for you to choose from.

Support

When you hold a newborn, it's crucial that you always have one hand supporting the head and neck. And this is because the head is always the heaviest part of a newborn's body at birth. Newborns don't possess the necessary neck muscles needed to keep their heads supported on their own until they're at least 4 months old. For this reason, head support will always be needed. Also, when you're holding your child, it's crucial that you pay special attention to their fontanelles, the soft spot on the top of their head.

Choose The Position

When you're beginning to hold your newborn, first begin by placing one hand under their head and another under their bottom. Then, gently lift their body to your chest level. So long as you're supporting your child's head and neck, the position you choose is up to you.

There are four positions:

  • Cradle Hold
  • Shoulder Hold
  • Belly Hold
  • Lap Hold

For this article, we'll only be talking about how to perform the Cradle Hold. But you should research more into how you perform the other holds. It's important that you experiment and see which hold works best for you and your newborn child.

Cradle Hold

 This type of hold is one of the easiest ways to hold your newborn for the first several weeks of their life. To perform it, just follow these simple steps:

  1. When you lift your child to your chest level as mentioned above, slide your hand from their bottom up to support their neck.
  2. Very gently, nudge your baby's head into the crook of your elbow.
  3. With your newborn's head still cradled in the crook of your elbow, move your hand from the supporting arm (the arm in which the elbow is occupied by the baby's head) to their bottom.

By following these steps, carefully, you'll be able to perform the cradle hold with no problems whatsoever. Also, by performing the cradle hold properly, you'll have a free hand available to perform other activities when needed.

Most Needed Furniture For Young Children's Bedrooms

Posted by RPP KIDS on

If you're a parent whose child has finally reached the age where the nursery will need to become a bedroom, then you're going to be challenged with doing quite a bit of redecorating. And the most problematic of the task is deciding which sort of furniture you're going to need. But while there are a myriad of different furniture pieces you can purchase and use to decorate your child's room, don't fret. We here at Rooms For a Prince & Princess can assist you in choosing the right furniture for your child's bedroom. And if you need a headstart in knowing what furniture you should get, continue reading below.

What Sort of Furniture Should You Get?

The main thing you need to keep in mind when purchasing furniture for a child's room is practicality. And you should especially look into purchasing furniture that's practical in the sense of storage. When young children are given something (e.g. a gift) they'll hold onto it for a long time and hoard it in their bedroom. And in many instances, parents have been challenged in trying to find ways to store their children's belongings.

So when you browse through our online store, take a look through some of our furniture pieces that assist in storage; namely the pieces below.

Armories

Someday, you might notice that the dresser you have for your child isn't enough to keep all his or her clothing away. Or the closet itself may also not provide enough storage as well. And if you find yourself in this scenario, you should purchase one of our many armories. Armories function as a secondhand closet/dresser that aims in storing all that extra clothing your child has. You could also use them to store toys and extra items as well.

Bookcases

Does your child have a lot of books or toys that need a place to belong, as opposed to being on the floor? One of the best pieces of furniture that you could purchase for this issue is a bookcase. A bookcase will help store many of your child's belongings. And even as they age, the bookcase will still be practical enough to be used by them. On the bookcase, your child can store their school books or other miscellaneous items. If you're interested in getting one, then browse through our many bookcases on our website.

Nightstands

Rather than being utilized as a solution to not enough storage, nightstands are actually used more as a means of convenience. Often placed next to the bed, your child's nightstand can be used as a means of storage that offers your child the chance to reach for something when they need it during bedtime. Besides just placing a glass of water on the stand for when they're thirsty, it could also be used to store books for when they want to read, as one example.

Whatever the case, you'll find that a nightstand will make an excellent addition to your children's bedroom. And when you want the best, take a browse through our high-end and quality nightstands.

How to Feed Your Baby Solid Foods

Posted by RPP KIDS on

It's one of the few things that many parents find they're unprepared for. And nobody ever really warns you about it. You have to be ready to learn how to feed your baby solid food when the time comes. And while the act itself sounds simple, it's important that you inform yourself of certain factors that go into the feeding process. To learn more about it, just simply continue reading below. We've compiled a small list of things you need to keep in mind as you're about to feed your baby.

Get The Proper Equipment For Eating

First and foremost, it's important that you equip yourself with the right products to feed your baby. Your standard plates and utensils aren't going to cut it for your baby. Babies can be fussy little mess makers. And they often exemplify this the most as they're eating. If you hand them food on a standard dining plate, they'll probably push it off onto the floor. And you don't ever want to hand them regular utensils. If you give them something like a fork, it can prove to be dangerous to their wellbeing.

Before the baby arrives, you want to ensure you have everything you need to accommodate for them. And when it comes to feeding, you essentially want to make sure you have at least the bare necessities (bib, high chair, etc). Take a browse through some of RPP Kids inventory. You'll find that we already have a lot of the equipment you already need to help feed your children. 

Is Your Baby Ready to Eat Solid Foods?

Typically, after 6 months of birth, your baby is ready to eat solid food. But, to have a deeper understanding of when they should be ready, we've listed some signs below:

  • Watch your infant closely next time you feed them. Is their tongue-thrust reflex gone? This reflex, which prevents young infants from choking also causes them to push food out of their mouths. When it disappears, it helps your infant-child to wean from the breast or bottle and to starting eating other types of food.
  • Is your baby able to keep his or her head up without your support? If they can keep their heads straight by themselves, then they're ready. In order to eat solid food, an infant needs good head and neck structure/control in order to sit up properly.
  • Has your child developed an interest in food? If so, then they're likely ready. When a 6-month-old child begins to stare and grab for food, it signifies that they're ready for some variety on their platter.

Through these signs, you should be able to indicate if your child is ready. However, it's always good to get your doctor's approval if you can. More so, if your child still seems frustrated and/or uninterested in the introduction of solid food, wait a few days or even weeks before trying again.

Feed Your Baby When They're Ready

With most newborns, they'll often need to eat roughly 12 times a day (one feeding every two or three hours) and they'll send you signals. Pay close attention to your child; if they're moving their hands to their mouth, sucking on their fingers, and/or smacking their lips, they're probably ready to eat. Fussing and crying are also other cues, and the sooner you start each feeding, the more smooth each feeding will go.

If they stop suckling, close their mouth, or turn away from the nipple or bottle, they're either full or are taking a break. Try burping your baby or wait at least a minute before you offer your breast or bottle again.

Tips For Feeding Your Baby Solid Foods

When you begin feeding your child solid food, it's important that they're a little hungry, but not so hungry that he or she is upset. To be extra careful to ensure they don't get fussy, you may want to breastfeed them a bit or provide the usual bottle. And when you do begin to feed them solid food, it's important that you have your child sit upright. Support them as they sit on your lap, or if they sit well on their own (as most 6 month infants are able to do) place them in a high chair with a safety strap. If you are without a high chair at the moment, you can order a quality one at Rooms For a Prince and Princess HERE.

As you begin to lift the spoon to your child's face, let them smell and taste it before you put the whole spoonful in their mouth. They might reject the first spoonful, which is totally normal for most young infants. And if they do reject it, just wait a minute and try again. Most foods that are offered to your child at 6 months will end up on the baby's chin, bib, or high-chair tray. Again, this is totally normal and will happen from time to time.

Typically, when you introduce a new food item to your child, you should introduce a new one after roughly 5 days. This is to make sure that the food you've fed your child doesn't cause an allergic reaction, diarrhea, rash, or anything of the sort. If you haven't noticed any negative effects caused by a new food item after 5 days, go ahead and introduce a new one to them.

Know What Foods Are Off Limits

While you should always seek a doctor's advice as to what to feed your baby, there are food items that should likely be avoided. If you or your significant other have a history of food allergies, speak to your doctor. In some cases, the risk for a peanut allergy often comes from when young children begin eating peanut products early. Your doctor will advise you on how to introduce such foods to your child.

Also, it's highly recommended that you don't give honey to your baby until after their first birthday. Honey contains spores that are harmless to adults but it can cause botulism in babies. Moreover, don't give your child cow's milk either until they're 1 year old. It doesn't have the nutrition that infants need.

How to Feed Your Baby Solid Foods

Posted by RPP KIDS on

It's one of the few things that many parents find they're unprepared for. And nobody ever really warns you about it. You have to be ready to learn how to feed your baby solid food when the time comes. And while the act itself sounds simple, it's important that you inform yourself of certain factors that go into the feeding process. To learn more about it, just simply continue reading below. We've compiled a small list of things you need to keep in mind as you're about to feed your baby.

Get The Proper Equipment For Eating

First and foremost, it's important that you equip yourself with the right products to feed your baby. Your standard plates and utensils aren't going to cut it for your baby. Babies can be fussy little mess makers. And they often exemplify this the most as they're eating. If you hand them food on a standard dining plate, they'll probably push it off onto the floor. And you don't ever want to hand them regular utensils. If you give them something like a fork, it can prove to be dangerous to their wellbeing.

Before the baby arrives, you want to ensure you have everything you need to accommodate for them. And when it comes to feeding, you essentially want to make sure you have at least the bare necessities (bib, high chair, etc). Take a browse through some of RPP Kids inventory. You'll find that we already have a lot of the equipment you already need to help feed your children. 

Is Your Baby Ready to Eat Solid Foods?

Typically, after 6 months of birth, your baby is ready to eat solid food. But, to have a deeper understanding of when they should be ready, we've listed some signs below:

  • Watch your infant closely next time you feed them. Is their tongue-thrust reflex gone? This reflex, which prevents young infants from choking also causes them to push food out of their mouths. When it disappears, it helps your infant-child to wean from the breast or bottle and to starting eating other types of food.
  • Is your baby able to keep his or her head up without your support? If they can keep their heads straight by themselves, then they're ready. In order to eat solid food, an infant needs good head and neck structure/control in order to sit up properly.
  • Has your child developed an interest in food? If so, then they're likely ready. When a 6-month-old child begins to stare and grab for food, it signifies that they're ready for some variety on their platter.

Through these signs, you should be able to indicate if your child is ready. However, it's always good to get your doctor's approval if you can. More so, if your child still seems frustrated and/or uninterested in the introduction of solid food, wait a few days or even weeks before trying again.

Feed Your Baby When They're Ready

With most newborns, they'll often need to eat roughly 12 times a day (one feeding every two or three hours) and they'll send you signals. Pay close attention to your child; if they're moving their hands to their mouth, sucking on their fingers, and/or smacking their lips, they're probably ready to eat. Fussing and crying are also other cues, and the sooner you start each feeding, the more smooth each feeding will go.

If they stop suckling, close their mouth, or turn away from the nipple or bottle, they're either full or are taking a break. Try burping your baby or wait at least a minute before you offer your breast or bottle again.

Tips For Feeding Your Baby Solid Foods

When you begin feeding your child solid food, it's important that they're a little hungry, but not so hungry that he or she is upset. To be extra careful to ensure they don't get fussy, you may want to breastfeed them a bit or provide the usual bottle. And when you do begin to feed them solid food, it's important that you have your child sit upright. Support them as they sit on your lap, or if they sit well on their own (as most 6 month infants are able to do) place them in a high chair with a safety strap. If you are without a high chair at the moment, you can order a quality one at Rooms For a Prince and Princess HERE.

As you begin to lift the spoon to your child's face, let them smell and taste it before you put the whole spoonful in their mouth. They might reject the first spoonful, which is totally normal for most young infants. And if they do reject it, just wait a minute and try again. Most foods that are offered to your child at 6 months will end up on the baby's chin, bib, or high-chair tray. Again, this is totally normal and will happen from time to time.

Typically, when you introduce a new food item to your child, you should introduce a new one after roughly 5 days. This is to make sure that the food you've fed your child doesn't cause an allergic reaction, diarrhea, rash, or anything of the sort. If you haven't noticed any negative effects caused by a new food item after 5 days, go ahead and introduce a new one to them.

Know What Foods Are Off Limits

While you should always seek a doctor's advice as to what to feed your baby, there are food items that should likely be avoided. If you or your significant other have a history of food allergies, speak to your doctor. In some cases, the risk for a peanut allergy often comes from when young children begin eating peanut products early. Your doctor will advise you on how to introduce such foods to your child.

Also, it's highly recommended that you don't give honey to your baby until after their first birthday. Honey contains spores that are harmless to adults but it can cause botulism in babies. Moreover, don't give your child cow's milk either until they're 1 year old. It doesn't have the nutrition that infants need.
